Drone regulations in India
In April 2020, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) shortlisted 13 out of 34 consortia to carry out 'beyond visual line of sight' (BVLOS) drone pilots in designated airspaces in different parts of the country.

This includes Dunzo Air Consortium, Throttle Aerospace, Saubika Consortium, Asteria Aerospace, ShopXOmnipresent Consortium, ANRA Consortia A and B, Spicejet, Dhaksha Unmanned Systems, and ClearSky Flight Consortium. Since India doesn't allow BVLOS operations right now, this exercise is to create 'evidence-based regulatory requirements to enable commercial BVLOS operations in the near future'.

DGCA recently appointed Quality Council of India (QCI) asthe program partner. The draft certification manuals have been developed and are likely to be finalised by September 10, 2020.
